Ever since Lupe Fiasco dropped his classic verse on Kanye’s Touch the Sky, he quickly became one of the best lyricists. Two years later, between dropping mixtapes he dropped his own debut album, Food and Liquor. Food and Liquor had people taking notice his lyrical ability as he traded bars with Jay-Z and held his own. Throughout the years, Lupe has had his share of issues with other rappers and especially his label. Earlier in the year, he announced he’s not doing anymore features. Afterwards, he stated that he’s giving up violent music, games and cartoons. Now he’s dropped his newest project, DROGAS WAVE which is his 7th album.
The album comes seven days before its original release date due to it leaking onto the internet a couple weeks early. For album No. 7, Lupe delivers a robust LP of 24 new tracks, foregoing big-name rap features for assists from the likes of Damian Marley and frequent collaborators Nikki Jean, Crystal Torres and more. Production on the album is handled by Soundtrakk, Cardiak, DJ Dahi, Rosy Timms, S1 and others. Check out the tracklisting below and you can listen to it below also.
